Skin can easily break out during summertime. The humidity, high temperature, and outdoor activities lead to more sweating, bacteria, and oil which eventually can accumulate on the skin making the perfect condition for acne and blemishes. As fun in the sun continues, we'd better not let summer acne ruins our skin. We've gathered some tips on how to prevent summer breakouts as well as how to treat them.
1. Wear sunscreen when going out
It’s important to plan seasonal skincare routines. According to dermatologists, we should use more light-weight products, wear sunscreen, and wash hair more frequently. Both acne and sunburns are part of inflammatory processes. To avoid inflaming skin this summer, we should start by wearing a sunscreen on daily basis as the first step. Our tips for choosing non-breakout sunscreen is a non-comedogenic formula, which won't clog pores and cause more acne.
2. Wash hair frequently
If you suffer from back acne and hairline acne this summer, the best solution is to frequently wash your hair, which will prevent oil and debris from clogging your pores.
3. Use a toner to get rid of excess oiliness
Toners usually contain ingredients that re-balance the skin's pH back to natural levels, reducing excessive oiliness and cleansing away irritating substances which are all meant to help prevent clogged pores, reduce inflammation, and regulate oil production. However, it's crucial to make sure the ingredients in your toner aren't drying or irritating.
4. Do not over-washing
While it's important to cleanse excess oil and sweat, over-washing can dry skin out and create more inflammation, and causing more acne. Instead, find a proper cleansing routine, which twice a day should be enough to clean out pores and dirt on the skin.
5. Cleanse out sweat
Outdoor activities and working out in the sun can produce more sweat. It's ideal to look for loose-fitting, breathable clothing, and use a towel with clean water to remove remaining sweat to prevent blockage.
